This week is National Carers Week (June 8 to 14) and Bolton Council has organised a range of opportunities for carers to get information, support and advice.
During the week, the mobile information unit will be at various locations throughout the town offering practical advice and information to anyone who is helping to look after a friend, neighbour or someone in their family.
Advice will be available on financial support, help in emergencies, breaks for carers, how to get a carer’s assessment and much more.
The mobile information unit will be open from 10am to 3.30 pm at the following locations:
Bolton Market, Ashburner Street - Tuesday, June 9
Brackley Street, Farnworth (near Asda) - Wednesday, June 10
Newport Street, town centre - Thursday, June 11
Victoria Square, town centre - Friday, June 12
Anyone who is a carer and who would like a little extra support in their caring role is welcome to go along and find out about the opportunities available.
The advice sessions provided by the mobile information unit form part of Bolton Council’s six-week campaign aimed at people with caring responsibilities.
The “Who Cares? We Do” campaign makes it clear and simple for people to access the right advice, information and support to help them in their caring role.
There is a dedicated telephone number and text service for people to use if they want to find out more. Contact 01204 337682 or text TALK to 84555.
